ever, that a serious clash- wil occur
between the troops and the strikers In
The fact that the Lehigh Coal and
Navigatoin Company is hoisting coal
at its No 4 colliery has greatly incens
ed the mine workers, especially the -
foreigners, and they are determined
not to allow non-union men to go to
work to-morrow. At 'daybreak the
Governor's Troop and the First Bat
talion- of the Twelfth Regiment will
go to Lansford and Summit Hill. If
the strikers continue to interfere with
the non-union men it is probable that
both towns Will be placed under mar
tial law. -
